iPad Peek: Thanks to iPad Peek, you are now able to visualize how your blog or website would render on the iPad. A few tips as offered by Mashable include clicking on the top border to switch from landscape to portrait mode, disabling Flash on your browser to simulate the lack of Flash support on the iPad and changing your browser user agent string to that of the Apple iPad.

    Thanks for the info! I am sure it will be helpful for anyone who do not have an iPad. Since i got mine already i can confirm that the results between iPad Peek and the actual device are almost identical. It is indeed a good way to check out the appearance on Apples newest gadget. :)

    doesn’t the aspect ratio on that thing seem wrong? Maybe it’s because I’m looking at it on a wide screen monitor, but it seems too square to me.

    iPad Peek showed all of my lovely flash content! What a relief! Apple finally upgraded their processors to support a cornerstone of web content delivery!

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but as mentioned in the article, Flash has to be turned off in your browser to be closer to the reality of the iPad.

        I’m glad you corrected this. I watched a podcast by geekbrief and flash was one of her beefs because it didn’t work. I thought maybe they fixed it but I guess not. Thanks Mark.

    Very cool utility. If the Ipad takes off like I think it may, there is going to be a whole whirlwind of apps just like this one.

    Could be very exciting for the tablet community.

    Spectacular resource, thanks for the link. I was afraid my site wouldn’t render on the Ipad but it looks great.

    Clever web page, thanks for the link, it’s a nifty little tool and I’ve had a “peek” at my blog and it seems to look fine on the iPad, which is a relief.

    Great blog btw, keep up the good work

    PS – Not long until the iPad is released in the UK (hopefully glitch free)

    Very very cool :) I’ve used emulators to see how websites we make look like on mobile devices. Makes sense there would be one for the iPad. I have a strange feeling this gadget will be a bit popular, haha!

    Not as cool as actually using an iPad, but certainly a great way to get a feel without owning one. Thanks for making me aware of this…now I’m off to use the real thing!

    Hmmm. Not that helpful if it’s Flash enabled… I can open up Safari and test on my Mac at the right size and it’s basically the same experience.

    The iPad is a giant iPod touch. There is some appeal for me to this device because my iPhone can be too small for browsing the web or doing real email responses. It isn’t a netbook or a tablet PC or a little notebook.
